The original church was designed so that it could be added to in the future. Now, forty years later, the vision became a reality with the completion of the recent expansion of St. Barbara. The updated space was planned as a seamless addition to the well-loved, existing parish church. A two-story high narthex with stained glass sets the tone and provides a new, more “church-like” presence when viewed from the main road. Similarly, a side entrance lobby ties together the educational spaces and provides needed additional support facilities. The parish has been so pleased with the work that we are currently in the process of designing a freestanding fellowship hall and adoration chapel.
